A Visit to the Hospital

By Phyllis Naegeli
1     Janine's footsteps echoed on the tile floor as she and her mom walked slowly down the hall of the hospital checking the room numbers.
 
2     They arrived at a room with the door closed. "This is her room, number 354. Oh, my!" exclaimed Mom as she read a sign taped to the door. "It says we need to go to the nurses' station first."
 
3     A look of concern crossed Janine's face. "I thought Grandma was better."
 
4     "That's what the doctor said. I guess we need go to the nurses' station and ask what this is about."
 
5     "Okay," said Janine.
 
6     Janine and her mom walked down the hall until they came to the nurses' station. A dark-haired woman looked up as they approached the counter.
 
7     "Can I help you?" the nurse asked.
 
8     "I'd like to see my mother," said Mom. "She's in room 354."
 
9     "Oh, yes," said the nurse. "You will need to wear a mask and clean your hands with an antibacterial solution before you go in."
 
10     Janine looked at her mom with a puzzled expression. "Why do we have to do that?"
 
11     The nurse looked at Janine and smiled sweetly. "Your grandmother has been very sick. Although her health has improved over the past few days, we want to be sure to do whatever we can to keep her from catching something else. Even a cold could make her very sick again. Wearing a mask and cleaning your hands are infection control methods we use all the time to protect patients here in the hospital."
 
12     "Oh! I don't want to make Grandma sick again," said Janine anxiously. "Where's the hand cleaner and mask?"
 
13     The nurse placed a pump bottle of antibacterial solution on the counter. Then she pulled two blue face masks from a large square box and placed them next to the bottle.
 
14     "Here they are," said the nurse. "Just squirt some of this solution onto your hands and rub them together. It works like a lotion so you don't need to rinse."
